addaword.gifdefinition of body con

adjective
(also bodycon)
relating to a style of tight-fitting women's clothing
Happily, there's something else called "body con", which is proving surprisingly popular at the moment. Short for "body conscious", this refers to skintight mini-dresses, tight high-waisted trousers and basically any other garment that makes you, as the name suggests, very conscious of your body - conscious in the sense that you can't eat lunch without busting a seam.
